Contrary to what one might think at first glance, the leap of faith is much more important in the path of knowledge (Jnana) than in that of devotion (Bhakti).
In this latter, and without necessarily seeking to establish an artificial hierarchy between Jnana and Bhakti, since there can be a form of devotion which has soaked in knowledge and conversely, a leap of faith is less total in the spirituality of devotion, for it remains spotted with dualism.
The disciple, in fact, even if he sets up the logistics for the profound changes, continues to operate from his usual mode of being.
Strictly speaking there is no such thing as a ‘leap’.
The disciple on the Path of Knowledge keeps jumping from the person he was
until he reaches a deeper layer of consciousness,
until he abandons the platform of his initial being.
This process is inherent to the investigation of the layers of consciousness,
More than a leap of faith, it could be more appropriate to speak about a ‘slip’ consubstantial to the Path.
